Act R.S.O. 1990, c. H.8, s. 73 (2) and H.8, s. 73 (3).

In Simple Words
The front Two windows (driver and passenger) can be tinted to any amount of darkness as long as its visible, Since Ontario Cops mostly are not equipped with window tint meter detectors they will use their judgment once your pulled over (could be any other reason too). The same rule will apply to the Front Windshield Window Tint. Personally as a Professional Window Tint Installer in Toronto I wont recommend anybody tinting their Front Windshield darker than 90% Visible Light Transmission (VLT).
